3-Ingredient Peanut Butter Brownies recipe

Need to whip up something quick and easy for your next tailgating event or game-day party? This recipe is the perfect pick: With just three ingredients — okay, four, if you spring for semisweet chocolate chips, like we did — it’s unbelievably easy to make.

The Reese's chocolate peanut butter spread makes these brownies taste like a fudgy-centered-yet-cakey-edged Reese’s Cup. There’s peanut butter flavor, but it doesn’t overpower the chocolatey, gooey essence that makes a brownie a brownie.

3-Ingredient Peanut Butter Brownies

Prep time: 5 mins
Cook time: 22 mins
Total time: 27 mins


1 jar Reese's Chocolate Peanut Butter Spread (or Jif's version)
½ cup flour
2 eggs
(Optional) Mix-In: 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips


1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. As it heats, mix the chocolate peanut butter spread, flour and eggs in a bowl, stirring just enough to combine and get rid of any big flour lumps. (Any more than that, and the cakier the brownies will get.)

2. Lightly grease the bottom of an 8"x8" or 9"x9" pan — a round cake tin works too — and pour the batter in. Bake for 20-22 minutes, or until the edges of the brownies start to pull away from the pan and a toothpick inserted into the center of the brownies comes out mostly clean.
